The New Netflix Series “The Watcher"

The new Netflix series “The Watcher" resembles the kind of stalking found in gangstalking with electronic harassment and psychotronic torture. A clandestine rogue “watcher" hides behind the veil of secrecy while sending the new owners of 657 Boulevard in Westfield, New Jersey tormenting messages. The series is based on true events that transpired to the Broaddus family.

The series retells the “haunting of a dream house" and the house owners Maria and Derek Broaddus. Similar to gangstalking with electronic harassment and psychotronic torture, the identity of the perpetrator was NEVER found out.

The first letter was cordial, inviting the new owners to the neighborhood. But soon the letters would turn dark and ominous. One letter declared the writer’s grandfather watched the house in the 1920s and his father had watched it in the 1960s. He asks the couple, “Do you know the history of 657 Boulevard? Why are you here? I will find out.” The letters went on to mention the couple’s two young children and if there were more on the way? Calling the children “young blood.”

The letter left the couple creeped out so they contacted the police. But the police couldn’t do anything except test the letter for DNA and search the property for clues as the letters asked, “Have you discovered what is in the walls?” The police advised the Broadduses that their new neighbors were all now suspects.

Another letter asked if the couple would let their children play in the basement? Citing the basement was far away from the rest of the house and if they were upstairs they’d never hear their children’s screams. The anonymous writer claimed he passed by the house many, many times a day and that 657 Boulevard was the writer’s “job,” “life" and “obsession.” And the owner’s family was now the writer’s job, life and obsession too!

The anonymous writer threatened the family by saying, “accidents happen”, a broken bone, a mild illness that makes you sick day after day after day after day. The last line, “a mild illness that makes you sick day after day after day after day" is what gangstalked victims of electronic harassment and psychotronic torture suffer. The vagueness of the identity of the perpetrator and the torment of the victims are what is so strikingly similar in both cases.

As a result of the fear instilled in them by this anonymous writer, the family never moved in to the house, but rented the house out. In 2019 it was eventually sold for $400,000 less than what they originally paid.
